My name is Eric and before I became a writer, I was an avid reader. Edgar Allan Poe was always such an interesting writer to me. Even back in school I secretly loved reading his work. I decided to start a blog about him: his writing, his life, death, and anything else intriguing about him I could find. When I’m not writing, I like hiking, camping, and just generally spending time outside. I love being outdoors and my favorite season is fall. I love the way it smells: dry leaves, wood smoke, and the crisp air. I still love to read but now my passion is writing. I hope you enjoy reading about Poe as much as I enjoyed writing it!
